Krasnoyarsk Cheremshanka Airport (Russian: Красноярский аэропорт Черемшанка) (ICAO: UNKM) is a domestic airport in the Krasnoyarsk Krai, situated 23 kilometres (14 mi) northwest of Krasnoyarsk. It became the base of a civil defense helicopter detachment in 1982, featuring Mil Mi-6 and Mil Mi-8 aircraft. In addition to military use, the airfield serves some regional civilian passenger flights using Antonov An-24 and Antonov An-26 aircraft. It is the hub of KrasAvia airline. Krasnoyarsk Cheremshanka is adjacent to the larger Krasnoyarsk International Airport and appears very similar to it from the air, since its two runways, although shorter than those at the international airport, have the exact same bearings (11/29).

2011 fire

On 19 December 2011, a fire broke out at the Cheremshanka airport which destroyed the terminal building and the air traffic control tower. About 100 fire fighters and 38 vehicles managed to extinguish the fire some four hours after the alert. No injuries occurred, and no passengers were in the terminal building (capacity 500 passengers) when the fire broke out. The reason for the fire is under investigation. [1]

Passenger Terminal

After the destruction of the original terminal by fire, passengers were served at a temporary terminal made from the previous cargo terminal. The destroyed terminal was reconstructed and enlarged to accommodate 30 flights a day. The new passenger terminal was opened in June 2018.[2] The terminal serves regional flights only.[3]
